    The only indoor range is in DuBois. It is private, members only. You have to qualify with your guns. The range is limited to standard handgun rounds - no magnums. Joining requires doing a dog and pony show. No "pro-shop", once a member you get the door combination. There aren't any employees.

    You're best off joining a sportsmanship club that has a range. The are less formal and don't have all the asinine rules.

    I never knew there was a range there.

    Yep, my dad took me there when I was a kid. I asked him about it the other day and he said that they closed it for insurance purposes quite a few years ago.

    You have so much wood land why do you find a range of interest? I have a little 5 acer plot off Fisher Seigal Rd. , PM me .It's safe and in the middle of no-where.

    I live in Clarion county and I have friends with camps in Jefferson county , I've never been to a range. There are so many places to shoot what is it about a range that you desire -vs- freely shooting .

    How many yards do need ? Do you have your own fire arms ?
    Maybe I'll have to go to a range and see why ?

    I have a few friends with camps around here as well but they are all lazy and all they like doing is going to the bar which really isn't my thing lol so that leaves me with no place to shoot and no one to shoot with

    i just want to shoot don't much care where at just as long as i can safely and legally...shooting is like meditation for me lol the place i went to was a open range on a back road...pretty much a free shoot range but like i said last time i was there they put up signs because people had no respect for the range so i can't really blame them. i've never been to actual range myself either mainly for two reasons 1 i can't use the ammunition i have at an indoor range (i use mainly military surplus fmj though i just picked up 500 rnds of wpa fmj 223 and 840 rnds of surplus 7.62x54r for the Mosin) and 2 i can't move around when i shoot i like to do moving drills now and then

    minimum of probably 100 yards although more yardage would not be frowned upon lol i have a RIA 1911 45ACP Gov. Model,custom built Spikes Tactical ar 15 M4 variant as mil spec as possible minus the auto sear of course and for it i follow the K.I.S.S. philosophy,and a good ol 1940 Mosin Nagant 91/30 with a scout scope setup

    When I was 16 , I was not your normal kid. I wanted to do things nobody else wanted to.
    I wanted to do these things to the point where I would hope to share the experience with some one but they always had a reason they couldn't.

    Had I sat and waited , I'd never of done the things I have done or seen in my life time.

    It did take awhile to learn how to enjoy just myself but I started doing it so many times , it grew on me.

    On occasion people get to wandering and said why and how can you go out for 3 weeks by yourself , why do you do that ? Easy , you don't want to I do.

    I didn't wait for anybody or I never would of had the life I've had.
